    I suspect that there are just two sorts of lawyers: those who spend the efforts making life easy for other people – and parasites.

    Man is not a rational animal; he is a rationalizing animal

    there is nothing wrong with being scared. . . as long as you don’t let it affect you until the danger is over. Being hysterical is okay, too … afterwards and in private.

    I have a higher and grander Standard of principle than George Washington. He could not Lie; I can, but I won’t.

    Mark Twain



    Just a few of my favorites.
